Help me STAND UP TO CANCER!

It was 1996 when I lost my dad to lung cancer. A few years before he was diagnosed I lost my uncle Johnny to cancer. In 2005 I lost my aunt Eve to ovarian cancer. I have an aunt right now fighting to keep cancer at bay. Have you lost anyone to this awful disease? Do you have someone fighting right now with it? Please help me, and millions of others stand up to cancer and one-day find a cure.

All you need to do is click the Stand Up To Cancer Icon on the right sidebar and rate a video sponsored by Sprint. Leave your name with a message and they’ll donate to the cause! It really is that simple! Then if you wish to you can join social vibe and help like me get others to support a cause you believe in.

Thank you!

What does low MCHC mean in my blood test? Here is your answer…

Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC)

So you’ve gone to your doctor and had some blood test done. You are looking over the results wondering why the hell you have low MCHC? Here are some reasons why this can occur.

The first reason would be anemia. This is when your body is low on what it needs regarding energy. Usually iron deficiency. Healthy people have an adequate number of correctly sized red blood cells containing enough hemoglobin to carry sufficient oxygen to the body.

The typical level that is considered normal range of MCHC is MCHC: 32 to 36 gm/dL

I hope this answers the question as to what does low MCHC mean for you.

(I am not a medical doctor, always consult your own medical doctor with diagnosis, NEVER diagnose yourself. My information is only to help those who have the question to this particular problem.)
